Campaign Pix Turning Bitter?

The color photos all came from a Reuters slideshow titled “New York state of mind.” Because a number of the pictures border on the derogatory (many are redundant with a previous slideshow about the candidates shoveling food), I’m concerned about the bitterness. And the stereotyping. For instance….

Is Sanders too-often treated like an amusement?

Is Kasich the GOP’s Rodney Dangerfield?

Is the point that Trump — telling the world to kiss-off — is someone a lot of people can hide behind?
